Adobe Acrobat Snapshot tool

Using Acrobat 8.0, the Snapshot tool takes the snapshot but nothing is in the clipboard and there is no Paste option in other applications.

check the document security; File menu > Properties > Security tab; likely been prohibited.
if it's secured and you need to break the security you can purchase a tool here: http://www.elcomsoft.com
Once you select the Snapshot tool select the area that you want copied by clicking and draging your mouse over the area. Then open the program that you want to paste it to i.e. word and hit paste.

Lozano Smith's example is right on, but the problem is that after completing those steps, the Paste option never shows up.
I know this is not the answer but as a work around you can do a print screen paste it in Word and crop the image. I am still looking into why your paste option is not showing up but wanted to give you another option for the mean time.

Right click within the snap shot area and select copy to clipboard.  I have had this a few times and this worked for me.

I have a question about proportion of a snap shot.  I cannot resize a snap if it's not proportionate (square).  If the snap shot is a rectangle then the resize handles are outside the snap shot borders after pasting.  Does anyone know if there is a setting to keep the handles within the snap shot borders?
